believe me having lived through was quite incredible. but we do have a presidential election next week. and that before the storm was the big story. there is going to be some going to such an incredible shifting event, you'll have some reticence about taking positions. obviously one would expect there to be a ridiculously euphoric rally if romney were on to win. i don't believe he will. in fact i don't favor him winning. but having said that -- i know, no politics. >> no, i take issue with the statement that markets will have a rally if romney wins because we've seen a number of commenters putting out notes from firms from wall streerts who support romney nevertheless saying they think some of the price action, weaker stock market, a little bit of back up in bond yields may be owed to the fact that markets pricing in romney victory and actually not liking what it sees. p. >> i don't agree with that at all. i think on this side of the pond, the dominant view is that obama will probably succeed. i don't think the market is pricing that in at all. i think if anything, folks are continuing

, this election season, there are now 47 million people on food stamps. that's an increase of 14.7 million people or 46% since obama took office, and those people buy the smaller units at dollar general. say what you want about the president, the increase in food stamps is a huge tail wind for dollar general. and it's natural they would have some major stock-up business ahead of this storm. however, hurricane sandy is just icing on the cake for dollar general. i can't do any trades because they're too flawed but this investment, i like. i would be telling you to make this investment without the food stamp stock-up business from the storm. why am i such a big fan of this one? dollar general is the best of the dollar steers. best management, it's been able to deliver consistent double-digit earnings growth for the last several years. second, there's been trouble in the dollar store space recently. i think this industry is still a terrific fit for the times we're in. it ain't no boom here. an environment of high unemployment, slow wage growth, expensive gas prices, you better believe
